On October 15th, 1997, RAF fighter pilot Andy Green got behind the wheel of a twin jet-engined wondership known as the Thrust SSC, and smashed through the sound barrier. And this is what it looked like onboard.
(You may have seen this video before, seeing as how it's nearly 17 years old now, but I don't care, because it is awesome and my Editor just said "time doesn't exist." I'm not sure what that means, but he's been dealing with the DMV all day.)
Developed by top engineer Richard Noble, the Thrust SSC set a world land speed record that still stands today, at 763 miles per hour.
